[Browse] Allow to change Country Origin Suggestions

Hi there,

 

I think many users get annoyed by those "local" recommendations that are based on the country that is chosen by their payment method.

E.g. I'm living in Europe, where English language is not local language, and I'm getting recommendations for the local songs, which I don't like, and I'd prefer English music over that, is there any chance I could change my country of recommendations to US or Canada? 

 

Thanks

Still not going anywhere. I live in France and it keeps shoving French rap everywhere that I really do not want.

 

Come on Spotify I've been waiting for this for years and It really doesn't seam like an inappropriate request.

Still waiting. Disappointed that personalization doesn't seem to be a priority to Spotify. Ruins my day to see garbage on my Spotify app, on a so-called "premium" service that you pay for.

Here in Switzerland is the same same story. Why don’t you split the country in “payment” and “preferred country”?

Switzerland is four speaking language and thus the French side maybe prefers to listen French music than the German one. Same in Tessin (Italian language). Hope you implement this idea very soon.

Thanks

this is very annoying. I get all the account information in Germany because I am forced to live here, but I don't speak the language

I think Spotify should look at this and try to implement a solution.

Personally, i'm living in Sweden but i'm Norwegian and want to get playlists suggestion that are norwegian. I have also created an account for my kid, but I only get swedish playlist suggested. Would love if I could choose and get norwegian suggestion instead.

This is bull. I'm cancelling my annual subscription if this doesn't change by the time the next year's payment is due.

I would appreciate this so much, I moved to Europe and I miss my Brazilian recommendations

Please consider this as it is pretty annoying that I cannot choose what country I want suggestions from!
